"Lovely house and great location but frustrated occupants. Lovely christmas tree thanks. Lovely Aga. Good fridge/freezer capacity. Batterie de cuisine fit for purpose esp knife sharpening steel. Welcome basket lovely but would have liked the pepper grinder filled and decent salt and a small amount of milk for tea on arrival.There was no soap/ hand wash at all in the house! After a long journey seven people wanted the bathroom..............Fortunately we got there in time and knew the Coop opened late from previous visits. We would have despaired if we turned up later or were newbies to Bowness. For the number of people accommodated little space for hanging up/drying outdoor gearNo doormat so the hall floor got muckyOur Main bedroom hopelessly inadequate hanging and storage for clothes . We lived out of the suitcase for the week which was the last thing we expected for the price paid.There were no bath mats. Getting out of baths onto a slippery floor is not good and There were no oven gloves! Eek - a massive Aga- Xmas roasts- burnt hands. Not good. Inadequate quantity of wine and water glasses of same size for the total occupants.We were unable to negotiate the various black boxes and three controls linked to the TV the one or two occasions we wanted to view.Lastly, we are are committed to recycling. We found it confusing. No provision for plastic or card, yet a green bin down the road clearly indicated mixed recycling . Some of us took plastic home to recycle. Feel this is really important for the impact of the tourism industry.We did pop into the local office which said it sent an email about some of the above but did not have any response. We felt inhibited about contacting the phone number so close to Xmas"

"We arrived here on Friday night - our family arrived earlier in the day and got in with no problems and were able to park in 2 bays outside. We booked this as a surprise trip for my Dad's 60th, we booked this as he loves the Lakes and what set this place apart from the beginning was although it was not 'cheap' to stay here it was much more reasonable than competitors & so much more modern. Every room is finished to the highest quality & we all found a comfortable, cosy room! We had 3 children with us & each of them were equipped for with 2 travel cots & a spare mattress for the oldest. All 3 bathrooms are gorgeous, especially the 2 en suite that our party loved. So central & around everything in Bowness, short walks either side to places of interest and lots of shops very nearby. We were able to park 3rd and 4th cars in nearby streets without permits thanks to the knowledge of John! The men inhabited the man cave for the duration of the weekend and my 5-year old nephew especially loved the touch of the Xbox with lots of games, very good touch! I don't have enough adjectives to describe how lovely this place is or how much we loved the weekend here! All I would say is that it has more to offer than is advertised: washing machine, drier, iron & board, hairdryers, towels, travel cots & wish we had known about the sofa bed earlier haha! Thanks so much to John & the holiday company - Dad had such a great birthday, we all loved it & can't wait to come back! Hoping the price still sets it apart when we come back! As my nephew said it's his new favourite house!"

"Generally good holiday property for a large party, good space, furnishings and equipment.Too close to a noisy busy road, which meant sitting outside in the small garden area was not pleasant, so we moved the garden furniture to the front, which worked, although it was not private from other residents at The Terrace. It was also noisy during the night and particularly in the morning, for people who were sleeping on that side of the house.Major irritation was the cleaning team! When some of our party arrived early and wanted to park at the property, they were told that the parking spaces wouldn't be available until 4pm and that their cars would be in the way. This might be acceptable, if it wasn't for the fact that on the day of departure, when our departure time was 10am, some of the cleaning/maintenance team arrived before 9am. One parked his van right in front of the cottage, in a space we had intended to use for loading one of our vehicles. He then sat in the van and stared into the front door watching as we all moved around loading our vehicles. Eventually he sat at the table outside the front, and other cleaning people arrived early also. It felt like vultures were swirling overhead waiting for us to go, and definitely spoiled the last hour of our visit. When we were saying goodbye to other family members at 10am, people who we wouldn't see for another year, they were already in the house and stripping the beds."

It is over three floors, this cottage sleeps six people in three bedrooms, consisting of one lower ground floor double with en-suite shower, one king-size double, and one twin, as well as a bathroom. The cottage also has a kitchen, dining room and a sitting room with log burner. Outside there is a patio, with furniture, a water feature and a barbecue. The cottage is situated on the doorstep of Windermere's shop's and various restaurants. The owner as provided plently of local information for sight seeing and recommendations for places to eat. There is parking is available nearby and the owner as provided a parking permit which allows you to have free parking at selected car parks throughout the south lakes.. Spyri Cottage is an excellent base for exploring the whole of the Lake District"

"We felt this was a reasonable priced cottage, therefore the small things such as the uncomfortable living room, the old fashioned bedding in the downstairs bedroom and the run down en-suites upstairs seem acceptable. The rest of the cottage was amazing and the people who spoke to us were so friendly! The welcome basket was a nice touch, the huge arga was beautiful! The hallway was probably the prettiest part of the house. Not much sun in the courtyard but we weren’t too fussed anyway. Overall for a group of girls we found the cottage to be great, the location helped a lot! Bang in the middle of Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere so best of both worlds! I have a 5 year old and wouldn’t take her to this cottage due to the banister upstairs being dangerously low for small children. Such a shame as I would have definitely returned with my family if this wasn’t the case. Thanks for having us."
